A Place Called Home
Want to donate to this charity?

A Place Called Home means so much to so many. It’s a place to feel safe… where children can be themselves… where kids can find new friends, family, and loved ones. Most of all, home is where a community comes together. Home is where the heart is. At A Place Called Home, caring staff, supporters and volunteers come together to provide South Central children and teens 8 years old – 21 years old with love, safety, enrichment, training, and opportunities through educational programs, counseling, and mentorship. After-school, weekend, and all-day summer programs and services include tutoring and homework support, as well as a full spectrum of instruction in the arts, athletics, dance and music. The high school dropout recovery partnership with LAUSD is open in the mornings and they provide year-round support for college preparation, SAT tutoring, and college counseling and scholarships. In 2012 we provided support for 68 first-generation college students in local schools and across the country. APCH is a dynamic, non-profit youth center. The primary goal is to help its members stay in school, go on to higher education, pursue successful careers, and develop into active, contributing citizens and leaders. More than 1000 volunteers log in over 40,000 hours annually to enrich the lives of its members.
